EPA Stresses the Importance of Recycling and Proper Disposal of Personal Protective Equipment

EPA produced one radio and three video public service announcements to encourage households to recycle right and to not litter or put personal protective equipment (PPE) in recycling collection carts.
• EPA Administrator Wheeler’s video message
• Recycling during health crisis video
• Don't recycle personal protective equipment video

Additional information has also been added to our Recycling During COVID-19 website. The press release is available here. EPA is working with the National Association of Broadcasters to make them aware of the public service announcements, which can be accessed by media outlets.
